JAXA Delays H2A Launch Land Observing Satellite Daichi

by Staff Writers
Tanegashima, Japan (SPX) Jan 19, 2006
The launch of the H-IIA Launch Vehicle No. 8 (H-IIA F8) with the Advanced Land Observing Satellite Daichi (ALOS) onboard, has been postponed due to a malfunction found yesterday in a part of the launch vehicle onboard equipment(*1) during the Y-1 operations(*2).

JAXA will replace the malfunctioned part with a new one.

The launch was originally scheduled on January 19 (Thu), 2006 (Japan Standard Time) from the Tanegashima Space Center.

The new launch date will be announced as soon as it is determined.

(*1) Telemetry transmitter: the equipment to transmit flight status data to ground stations.

(*2) Operations one day prior to the launch day (The launch day is over two days for the H-IIA F8; therefore, "one day prior to the launch day" is actually two days before the launch day on a calendar.)
